After receiving the first loss on his ten fight professional record for using an illegal elbow strike on Matt Hamill at the TUF 10 finale, Jon Jones recently appealed to the NSAC to have the decision overturned.

The hope was that the disqualification loss could be downgraded to a no-contest, but yesterday, according to, Jones received the news that his appeal had been denied.

It’s a disappointing outcome, but also¬† an expected one. It’s rare for such a commission to get it’s hands dirty by becoming involved in decisions like these.

Though it leaves a blemish on Jones record anybody who watched the fight knows that he completely dominated it from start to finish, and that was unaware that the elbow strikes he landed were illegal.
